Crest Hotels has appointed a new hotel manager of the Feathers Hotel in Ludlow.
David Leggett takes the helm at the Feathers Hotel to spearhead the remaining refurbishment programme and lead the new team as the hotel fully re-opens its doors later this year.
Leggett has taken the reins at the 40-bedroom hotel and tea room during its phased re-opening following an investment now in excess of £1.5m by Crest Hotels, who assumed ownership of the hotel in December 2018.
“This is a dream job for me, I really cannot wait for the doors to officially re-open and welcome guests to such a much-loved hotel once more,” Leggett said.
“The Feathers Hotel is an iconic hotel in Ludlow that is steeped in history and heritage and, as we celebrate its 400th anniversary this year, I am confident that the new look hotel will be as well received as our new tea room was a few months ago.”
Commenting on David’s appointment, operations director for Crest Hotels, Jason Hiley said: “We’re delighted to welcome David to the team. He has a wealth of experience in the industry and he was the standout candidate. We know he will embrace the hotel and the community in which we operate to ensure we take the hotel to the next level.”
Crest Hotels is a privately owned and managed hotel group with five properties across the UK in its portfolio ranging from independent resort hotels, to largescale internationally branded properties.
